Patience!!! Takes a while to make this but OHH is it worth it. For those having trouble straining it try placing a double layer of cheese cloth over a bowl and secure with a large rubber band. Pour puree over cheese cloth and allow to drain. Repeat process using a sieve to get the smaller particles out. It's an extra step but much easier than trying to force it through a sieve the first time and gives you a much smoother puree to finish with.
I could have just opened a jar of cream of coconut and poured that into my glass.
WAY too sweet.
This is so good! I've made horchata before but not like this version. I put it in a milk bottle and my neighbor thought it was just that and poured herself a glass. What a surprise!! Now she's into making horchata at her house. Thanks!! Rum does work in it too.
I made this today and just tried it--delicious! I have never tried horchata, so I have no basis for comparison, but I like it a lot. My only issue was trying to strain the rice mixture...it just didn't seem to be flowing through the sieve...maybe a drop at a time, but at times not even that. I finally took a flat glass pitcher lid and used that to press the top of the mixture, and then it came through. Does anyone know if there is a way to make that process easier? It did eventually work though, and it tastes great! I highly recommend adding the rum. Thanks for the great recipe!
Try straining it in batches. I use a large wire strainer and I fill it 1/3 of the way full before I dump out the rice.
I used a 15 oz. can of Creme of Coconut, which made it sweet enough to not add the sweetened condensed milk. I also added a sprinkle of cinnamon before straining the mixture and finished it off with 1/2 cup of half & half to make it a bit creamier. Next time I would run the final product through a blender to incorporate the creme of coconut better. Delicious! It got rave reviews from everyone!
Kind of a pain to sieve but well worth the work! We added a bit of cinnamon too. Delicious!
Love it, made it the first time today. I think in next batch I will skip the flake coconut.
